Description

In the early twentieth century, The Eastern Buddhist journal pioneered the presentation of Buddhism to the west and encouraged the west’s engagement in interpretation. This interactive process increased dramatically in the post-war period, when dialogue between Buddhist and Christian thought began to take off in earnest. These debates attracted not only Zen voices but also thinkers from the Shin Buddhist tradition. This book brings together a wide range of classic writings from the 1950s to the 1970s which have significantly influenced subsequent Buddhist-Christian dialogue. It is a companion volume to Interactions with Japanese Buddhism: Explorations and Viewpoints in Twentieth Century Kyōto .
